Why over prop? !
No experience w/ Volvo's or tranny but I'd be cautious & asking more about the over prop...how long? why? Since new? Owners & brokers can tell you most anything - look for evidence - maintenance records, talk to the yard / mechanic that did the work? How about talking to the surveyor for more Q&A

I'm no diesel expert but have been trying to research & learn...my understanding...
Continued operation overloaded not a good situation and should probably be investigated thoroughly / fixed before undertaking a long haul cruise.

Boatdiesel.com probably worth a membership to research the engine, tranny, overprop situation.
